FAQ A4 Section 1:About the game A1 From Webster's dictionary: "Neopyhte: Noun, A beginner at some work, art, etc; Novice" Neophyte 3 takes place in a fiction world, divided into clans. You play as Neika, a novice warrior, and a member of the Roji clan. Your mother informs you one morning that you should visit the Wise Woman, who lives in a cave a little bit west of your village. The game takes off from here, in a typical "Coming of Age" story, but a small event gets in the way-Alien Software, the creators of the game, disbanded. This leaves the player hanging after 3-4 hours of gameplay. The game can be obtained from either: "The Home of the Underdogs(www.theunderdogs.org) OR Alien Software's homepage(http://www.aliensoft.com) A new feature has been putin this guide that will appear in my future guides: Content age rating for the game and guide. Similar to the ESRB's system, this feature gives you another view(Or in some cases, the only view) of a game's appropriateness for children, decided as a combonation of content and difficulty, i.e. Commander Keen 3 gets 9 and up, not for content, but rather for difficulty. This guide is split up into 4 sections, explained below. About the game:An introduction to the guide, and an explanation of the game Commands:Section taken from the manual. List of commands for each key General suggestions:Tips such as "Save Often" for the beginner(Or Neophyte) FAQ:Frequently Asked Questions-Specific clues for the game Go ahead and use this guide, but I have one request:Only use it when you NEED it.
